-▶  'MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT' QUIETLY EXTENDED BY CONGRESS'

A budget provision protecting genetically-modified seeds from litigation in the face of health risks was extended for three months in an approved US House of Representatives’ spending bill on Tuesday evening.

Called “The Monsanto Protection Act” by opponents, the budget rider shields biotech behemoths like Monsanto, Cargill and others from the threat of lawsuits and bars federal courts from intervening to force an end to the sale of a GMO (genetically-modified organism) even if the genetically-engineered product causes damaging health effects.

Global Evolution: Will we be in time?
What is happening to our planet and its ability to provide for and shelter us? Can it continue to sustain us? Or will it destroy us due to natural evolution or our interference with Mother Nature? Can we establish economic stability? Balance climate change? Eliminate toxic chemicals? Actually achieve world peace? How will we evolve and will we be in time to save ourselves or will we be destroyed by our changing planet?

Time Magazine: We Were Wrong About Saturated Fats | Health Impact News

Time Magazine: We Were Wrong About Saturated Fats | Health Impact News | Global Evolution: Will we be in time? | Scoop.it

"Reversing years of negative press on saturated fats, Time Magazine has finally admitted defeat on this issue, reversing course and admitting that the war on fat was wrong. They even expose the junk science that supports this dietary philosophy".


Via Alison D. Gilbert
Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

Will we be in time to know the right approach to cardiovascular health and stop using the wrong treatment(s) for 'high cholesterol'. Will we be in time to prove definitively what correlation cholesterol and saturated fat have? This latest news by Time Magazine is a complete reversal of past beliefs.

Thank goodness. This latest research on how to eat is such a relief. 

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, August 23, 2014 9:52 AM

Time Magazine may have admitted defeat in the issue of saturated fat and cholesterol, but Big Pharma is in no hurry. Statins, a drug used to lower cholesterol, may not be needed. That would be an economic bust to drug companies.

Designer of ‘I [heart] NY’ creates logo for climate change

Designer of ‘I [heart] NY’ creates logo for climate change | Global Evolution: Will we be in time? | Scoop.it

Milton Glaser, the designer behind the iconic 'I ♥ NY' logo, has turned his attention to global warming, creating a logo for an awareness campaign titled 'It's not warming, it's dying'.    "There is no more significant issue on Earth than its survival," Glaser told design publication Dezeen. "The questions is, 'how can anyone not be involved?'" Speaking of the design – a disk with a black-green gradient running from North to South – Glaser said, "I can never answer the question of how ideas originate, and apparently, neither can anyone else. But, symbolically, the disappearance of light seemed to be an appropriate way to begin."

Is it hot in here, or is it Milton Glaser?
Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

Is this the end or is it the beginning? Is it the birth of something new or the death of something old? Not even Milton Glaser, its creator is sure. But just to make sure that everyone is paying attention, he coined the phrase, "It's not warming, it's dying", to get everyone's attention. Good work from one of the world's greatest graphic designers.

THE FIRST OF FOURTH: NEW FACES FOR FOURTH CONGRESSIONAL ELECTION

THE FIRST OF FOURTH: NEW FACES FOR FOURTH CONGRESSIONAL ELECTION | Global Evolution: Will we be in time? | Scoop.it
For the first time in twenty years,
the race for the Fourth Congressional District will not feature an incumbent’s
running.  What might November
bring
Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

I think it is important to note that this article was written by a very conservative Republican, a decent person, but someone who himself has never been able to gain a place in public office. 

 

None the less, Frank McQuade has done the public a service by presenting a bio for each of the four running in both the Democratic and Republican primaries. Although I admit to not being a Carolyn McCarthy insider, I have heard her speak several times. She was thrown into the political arena on a one issue tragedy. She was a nurse, not a politician. 

I take some offense to McQuades' comment about her. "For eighteen years, Carolyn McCarthy has been a nearly invisible, ineffective representative.  She has been a one-issue harpy on gun control, and has not even been effective in promoting legislation to address that issue.  With limited professional credentials and as a rubber-stamp for her Party’s agenda, she was never meant to be in the same league as national politics." If she was so ineffective, why was she re-elected eight times?


Anyway, as I mentioned, the writer is a Republican, as I believe McCarthy was too before switching to run for the 4th CD seat. Either way, it will be interesting to see what happens on June 24th and then in November. I think both Rice and Blakeman will be shoe-ins for the primary. The election is not so easy to predict.

Milton Glaser designs campaign to tackle climate change | Global Evolution: Will we be in time? | Scoop.it
Milton Glaser, the graphic designer behind the ubiquitous I heart NY logo, has launched a campaign to raise awareness of climate change.
Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

Not every socio-geographic-political campaign can be as clever and universally loved as "I ♥ NY". But Milton Glaser, the world famous graphic designer who is responsible for the NY love phrase has come up with another doozie. This time it is in relationship to climate change which he considers more appropriately, "It's not warming, it's dying." His slogan and icon are causing quite a stir which is just what this issue needs.

Pitbull mauls little boy; neighbors say it's not the dog's fault

Pitbull mauls little boy; neighbors say it's not the dog's fault | Global Evolution: Will we be in time? | Scoop.it
He reportedly went to his neighbors' house to get his little brother and it almost cost him his life.
Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

This is my comment in response to the article, "I am hearing about so many attacks on people and even other animals by pit bulls. I know of a situation recently where a pit bull was allowed off its leash and attacked a service dog. I do not know yet if the service dog will survive. THIS IS INSANE. I agree with the comment below, "You will also not prevent the dog from being what he is genetically predisposed to be." Pit bulls are killing machines. It is their nature. They should be eliminated as pets or in any situation other than to do what they instinctively do, attack and kill."

Will we be in time to stop this insanity before anyone else is maimed or killed beside this breed of dog?
